Upload 10GB Files to OneDrive, Get 30GB of Cloud Storage Space

Microsoft recognized the fact that people have lots of files they want to keep safe in the cloud and increased the amount of cloud storage space that OneDrive offers for free. Back in June, Microsoft started to offer OneDrive users 15GB instead of 7GB of free cloud storage space (it must be mentioned here that Microsoft also lowered the prices for paid OneDrive cloud storage space).

Microsoft also recognized the fact that people have large files they want to keep safe in the cloud and added support for files up to 10GB in size. This means that you can now upload files that are 10GB large to OneDrive; you can upload the files using OneDrive for the desktop, any of the OneDrive Mobile apps, or the OneDrive website.
“Our goal with OneDrive is to provide a single place for you to store and share all the files in your life, regardless of their number or size. That’s why we’re excited to make it possible for you to store larger files, get them into OneDrive more quickly, and share them easily,” said Jason Moore, Group Program Manager, OneDrive.


As I’ve mentioned above, the cloud storage space that OneDrive offers for free has gone up from 7GB to 15GB. If you’re a mobile user, you can get even more than that.

Download one of the OneDrive mobile apps, enable camera roll backup anytime until the end of the month, and you can get 30GB of free cloud storage space.

This time-limited promo is mainly geared at new iPhone users – but it also applies to existing iPhone users, Windows Phone and Android users who activated the auto upload feature for their camera roll.

Microsoft found that many users who want to upgrade to iOS 8 don’t have enough room for the new mobile operating system. Instead of deleting photos and losing memories, Microsoft invites mobile users to back up their photos to OneDrive.

Douglas Pearce, Group Program Manager with OneDrive, explains:

“All you have to do is sign up for OneDrive and activate the auto upload feature for your camera roll sometime between now and the end of September, and you will get 30 GB of free OneDrive storage moving forward (15 GB base and 15 GB camera roll bonus). For those getting ready to install iOS8, this means you won’t have to delete a bunch of photos or apps to make room for the upgrade. For those buying a new phone, it means you can take all the high resolution photos and videos you want without worrying about the amount of storage you have.”
